You will recall from recent postings that I'm currently on the lookout for a new way of taking and recording notes. As part of my search, I also investigated methods for creating useful note-taking templates in spreadsheets such as Excel, OpenOffice and Libre Office.
One site I came across offers some amazing work. They are mostly spreadsheet templates, but not really for note-taking. Instead they are for more conventional spreadsheet purposes such as calendars, resumes, time planning, timesheets, forms and so on. There are even ones for fertility and ovulation.
What makes these templates so appealing is that they look absolutely stunning. The design is top-notch. My favourite is a heat map calendar. Enter some details of ongoing data, such as temperature, and it'll colour-code it to show you how it varies over the year.
You'll find all these designs, which are free, at www.vertex42.com. You'll need a spreadsheet program in order to use them. For the calendar templates, downloads for 2017, 2018 and 2019 are currently available.
